Just wanted to let my followers know that I will be on a hiatus for a little while until I get back into a regular schedule. The reason for my hiatus is because I just had my second baby on February 24th. Connor is now a big brother to Caitlin Anne Zamora Smith. She is quite the handful in addition to my overactive son. I love them both but they are keeping me away from my scrapbooking room. Hopefully, in a month or two I will get into a rhythm with the 2 kids and I can step into my craft room again...if they will let me.
